Southern Arizona nonprofit provides free clothing to foster children
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – Every week, KOLD News 13 partners with Casino Del Sol to highlight a person or organization that is going above and beyond in the community.
This week, KOLD highlighted Michele Wright, the executive director and co-founder of Spreading Threads Clothing Bank.
The local, grassroots nonprofit is dedicated to providing free clothing to kids and teens in foster care.
Wright said she realized there was a need when she began fostering children about 13 years ago.
“I got a placement from DCS that was two days old, and I didn’t have a lot of warning,” Wright said.
